Enbala is Named in the 2017 Global Cleantech 100 & As Winner of the “Automation of Everything” Award
VANCOUVER, British Columbia – January 23, 2017 – Enbala Power Networks today announced
it was named in the prestigious 2017 Global Cleantech 100, produced by CTG (Cleantech
Group), whose work keeps its audiences and clients in touch with emerging trends, leading
innovation companies and the key players in sustainable innovation.
The Global Cleantech 100 features companies that are best positioned to solve tomorrow’s
clean technology challenges and is a comprehensive list of private companies with the highest
potential to make significant market impact within a 5-10 year timeframe.
In addition to being named as one of the top 100 private companies in cleantech, Enbala was
also the recipient of the “Automation of Everything” Award. Sponsored by ABB Technology
Ventures, this is awarded to a company with significant impact on industrial automation and
“We are honored to see the work we’re doing to create a more sustainable future recognized
by such a prestigious organization,” said Enbala President and CEO, Bud Vos, “and the
Automation of Everything award is a tribute to both the Enbala team and the utilities we’re
working with to leverage the power of distributed energy.”
The Global Cleantech 100 list is collated by combining proprietary CTG research data, with
weighted qualitative judgments of hundreds of nominations, and specific inputs from a global
86-person Expert Panel. To qualify for the list, companies must be independent, for-profit,
cleantech companies that are not listed on any major stock exchange.
This year, a record number of nominations were received: 9,900 distinct companies from 77
countries. These companies were weighted and scored to create a short list of 325 companies.
Short-listed nominees were reviewed by CTG’s Expert Panel, resulting in a finalized list of 100
companies from 17 countries.
The 86-member expert panel was drawn equally from leading financial investors and
representatives of multi-national corporations and industrials active in technology and
innovation scouting across Asia, Europe, and North America. The composition of the expert
panel broadly represents the global cleantech community, from pioneers and leaders to
veterans and new entrants. The diversity of panelists results in a list of companies that
command an expansive base of respect and support from many important players within the
global cleantech innovation ecosystem.
“From day one, the purpose of the Global Cleantech 100 program was to act as our barometric
read on how the many facets that contribute to the emergence and maturing of an innovation
theme like cleantech (the ‘doing of more with less’) are changing year on year,” said Richard
Youngman, CEO, CTG (Cleantech Group). “Now in its 8th year, we see more signals this year of
the ongoing mainstreaming of clean technologies, sustainability, and resource efficiency on its
journey towards the point where this is just the normal way business is done.”
